Homeschooling Doubles in WV

by | May 26, 2021 | News, Quarantine

Homeschooling in West Virginia has more than doubled this past year according to a report by the U.S. Census Bureau. In fact, West Virginia is one of nine states with double digit growth!

Last spring, 5.4% of West Virginian households with school-aged children reported homeschooling. By October, that number had risen to 16.6% – an 11.2 point increase!

Nationwide increase is an impressive 5.6% overall, with only two states showing negative growth. The report also clarified that these were households reporting “true homeschooling rather than virtual learning through a public or private school.”

To better serve this influx of new homeschoolers, CHEWV has worked diligently to create new resources. Check out our new virtual course, curriculum ebook, and planning materials.
